ASep Healthcares first product, tournistrip was invented by Ryan Kerstein and Christian Fellowes, both doctors, in response to the unmet clinical need for a single use tourniquet to actively reduce risk of contamination. Ryan and Christian worked with Imperial Innovations LLP to provide early stage investment that led to the formation of ASep Healthcare Limited in 2008. ASep benefitted by follow-on funding from the North West Fund for Biomedical which has allowed ASep to grow its product offering and management team.
ASep Healthcare has significantly expanded its tourniquet product range to provide quality products in all segments, from single use to single patient use in adults and paediatric areas. ASeps goal is to make blood collection simpler, intuitive and stress-free for caregivers and patients. This led to the design of innovative dispensing systems to protect the integrity of the tourniquets, and allow simple, one-handed operation for successful blood draws.
